Wax On, Wax Off Cliché, but true: it’s a small island. Looking your worst on a late night run for wine and ice cream? Garans you’ll run into your ex, high school arch enemy, or your boss. And when you’ve got a sensitive female appointment, forget privacy – somebody you know will be there, or know someone who knows someone…

So avoid at least one unexpected encounter and visit esthetician Katie Dye, who offers spa-caliber waxing services in her secluded Kailua residence. That means you won’t spot other clients in the parking lot, know any receptionists behind the desk, or worse – see any back-waxing men in the waiting room (it’s ladies only).

Before branching out on her own, Dye worked at the San Diego Four Seasons and Spa Olokina in Waikiki , and she does it all – a full Brazilian or partial, bikini line, underarms, arms, legs, eyebrows and upper lip waxing. She charges less than a spa and gives discounts for multiple removals, and best of all she’s fast, so the hairs (and the pain) will be gone in a blink.

On the outside it’ll look like you’re just stopping by a friend’s place, and on the inside – well, that’ll be your secret.

Katie Dye, Wax Specialist and Esthetician, Kailua, O‘ahu. Call 808.398.8248 for prices and appointments.
